Favorite?

I mentioned in my last post that my grandma has a gift for making everyone feel special, and we all think we are her favorite. BUT...I think these pictures (if you look closely) will prove who is actually her favorite. Granted, many of her grandchildren were not present, but all of her children were and some key grandchildren were in attendance. I'd say the proof has been caught on camera. Anyone else see it?







We all met up for a special night in honor of my grandmother. It was a night full of laughs and even a few tears. Many memories were shared, but this was my favorite: One of her daughters wanted to drop out of college, and my grandma wrote her a letter, and it read, "The Lord will see to it that all the birds are fed, but he won't drop the food in the nest." This story fits my grandmother to a tee.

The favorite?!?! Well that's because I was on the other side of the country. :) No, she really does make everyone feel like they are important and her favorite.

She is a strong lady that has taught everyone so much. My favorite memory of her is when I was upset about something someone said. She said "Joan, if the don't like it then screw 'em"...or something to that effect. I still always remember that advice.

So who initiated the hand holding?
I remember your Grandmother. Hard working, good woman! You have always thought the world of her. What a blessing to have such a wonderful person in your life! Total side note but I remember the water in the her bathroom looking sorta orange and smelling a little bit like sulfur. Do you remember this?
